    Both solid options... so whatever you're feeling stronger about, go for it!

    My gut says you want bronze, because that's not the "safe" answer, and you want validation.

    FYI, here's the best place to find examples. Just search this thread for "bronze".

    I went black on my Quicksand and really like them. They are however very subdued. If you like stealthy go black, if you want them to pop more bronze is the ticket. Can’t go wrong with SCS though super nice wheels. Remember to paint your hubs before mounting though.

    Both work well with MGM , particularly the darker bronze in my opinion.

    @VaToy is right, bronze is the new black. That being said, things will eventually go circle and before you know it, chrome will get you home and Weld Typhoons will be the wheel to have. upload_2024-2-12_4-32-31.jpg

    Be different everyone and their dog is on black/bronze. Even machined aluminum is really picking up popularity out here. I went wild on my new set of summers and it's almost a 50/50 love hate feedback on it but hey it will be the only one that has that look in the city potentially country....

    Everything but the driveshaft. B03A - 410
    Bronze - It should be about running a high quality product that is lightweight and reduces unspring rotational mass. You will love either color once you start running them.

    Bronze.
    I work too much and don’t wash my truck every week. Bronze helps so my truck doesn’t look as dirty as it really is.

    I went front black to bronze on my MGM. I preferred the bronze just for a bit more individuality. I feel like most black wheels are played out. With that said, I like the F5’s in black more than the bronze…so TLDR; I’m no help. B8847B77-C892-453D-8E6A-D1B51FB7A511.jpg

    Is neither an option? Personally I think MGM needs some shine on its wheels. Bronze doesn’t look that good with the gray (odd mix to me) and black just makes the truck way too dark. If I had to choose between those two I’d go bronze.

    I don’t like anything matte because it’s harder to clean
